Because you (probably) only need modules that are loaded at the beginning
of the list.

IMO it is worth to play around with the insmod.sh script (the one that is used
when calling "make insmod"). Remove the modules that are not required
in the "start" case. Start from botton, e.g. by removing half of all modules.

Kind regards,
